I hope that your time here to be useful and helpful for you as you continue your journey.
For pronouns, either people will tell you or you may ask. Usually it is fairly obvious here, but it can be a different story in public.
As far as terms and definitions related to transgender people, the Planned Parenthood site is a good starting point:
Other sites with useful information are (but there are MANY others):
- World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH)
- National Center for Transgender Equality
- Human Rights Campaign (HRC)
- Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD)
Note that while terms and definitions will be fairly similar, there will be some differences. Things are not cast in stone.
I also encourage you to complete your profile as it serves to help us get to know you better and where things sit for you…
